About

• “Altogether, Coyote Motel is a lot of fun, a near-perfect fusion of blues, country, rock, and folkish elements that shouldn’t work but instead sounds like Drozdowski invented the entire Americana genre. Grade: A BUY!” — Rev. Keith A. Gordon, That Devil Music

• “Ted Drozdowski is one of the most imaginative guitarists currently exploring the outer reaches of cosmic roots music. [He has] inventive guitar chops, his deep respect for the blues and an off-kilter artistic vision that’s delightfully mad, but also completely organic. ”— Peter Lindlbad, Elmore Magazine

• “Drozdowski conjures up his own mesmerizing hoodoo on Coyote Motel, which is also the name of his new combo. The guitarist ranges here from the moody atmospherics of “Still Among the Living” to the dirty rocking of “Down in Chulahoma” and the punkish intensity of “Jimmy Brown.” What most of the album’s tracks have in common is the way Drozdowski’s six-string excursions venture far out – sometimes into the realm of the psychedelic – while they and the music manage to remain grounded in the elemental immediacy of the blues.” — Nick Cristiano, Philadelphia Inquirer (syndicated review column)

• “Their masterful new self-titled LP. Coyote Motel, is something of a lucid dream woven from cosmic threads of blues and other roots musics, as Drozdowski navigates some challenging emotional territory in his lyrics, from the intimately personal to musings on society as a whole. The music is plenty to take you somewhere else.” — Steve Trageser, Nashville Scene

• The depth and layering of this record rewards multiple listens and endures as time goes on. Highly recommended for the listener who is searching for a new non-traditional real deal Blues experience. — Bucky O’Hare, Blue Blast Magazine

• “The band’s new record has three things current blues records often lack: great songs, a sense of mystery, and the concept of a record as a work of art in and of itself, and not just as a recorded bar performance.” – Michael Ross, Guitar Player
